Sinisa Mihajlovic is expected to leave Serbia this evening and start work at Sampdoria tomorrow morning.
The Serbian FA confessed there was little chance of keeping their Coach  and Sky Sport Italia maintain it’s only a matter of hours before the move is made official.
Sampdoria are currently without a tactician, as they fired Delio Rossi on November 11 and are in the hands of caretaker manager Francesco Pedone.
The Blucerchiati notched up only two wins, three draws and seven defeats in Serie A this season.
Mihajlovic’s final match in charge of Serbia will be a friendly against a team chosen by local journalists.
This is a return to Marassi for the former Fiorentina and Catania Coach, as he was a player at Sampdoria from 1994 to 1998.
